Ward is beginning a business making and selling turn-key raised bed gardens and is chatting with Eileen who grows flowers in over 900 square feet of garden space in a number of community gardens.

Justin – who went out and built his own community garden near where he lives – wants to setup a non-profit group to organize offical community gardens in various parts of the city, is talking with Jan who has done similar work in the U.S.
